Science can be a fantastic vehicle to support English skills but it should not be to the detriment of time spent doing practical science. Through practical activities we will explore what links can be made and consider what science is being taught and what English is demonstrated. We will discuss expectations in terms of recoding in science.

Did you know that the HSE guidelines state that employers should ensure their first aiders remain competent to perform their role? As such, it is strongly recommended that first aiders undertake annual refresher training to practise their skills and update their knowledge on the latest first aid procedures.
The QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (Annual Refresher) (RQF) qualification is specifically designed to allow qualified first aiders to update their first aid skills yearly, until requalification training is required. Successful candidates will leave with a renewed confidence, having had the opportunity to practise essential first aid procedures, as well as learn the latest techniques needed to deal with an emergency situation.
With all subjects covered in just 3 hours, this course is an ideal way to satisfy HSE requirements whilst minimising disruption to your organisation’s day to day activities!

Agenda to be confirmed.
Input from Ian Dawson.
Can we help KS3 pupils begin to see the Middle Ages and its people in the same ways that historians see them?
This session explores alternative approaches to teaching about the Middle Ages which aim to provide students with a more accurate and better balanced understanding of the period. The session is built around three elements:
- Students’ misconceptions about the Middle Ages and why identifying them is so important
- Using different types of enquiries
- Linking the Middle Ages to the rest of KS3 History
This event is an opportunity for Subject Leaders to keep up to date with national and local priorities as well as learn from best practice. Subject Leaders work collaboratively to develop leadership skills and there are opportunities for new learning in line with national and local priorities, as well as input from nationally recognised speakers.
The day will focus on the key principles of designing and teaching a curriculum in geography which is rigorous, fosters the development of young geographers and which can be assessed in a practicable way. The sessions will be immersive and interactive with an emphasis throughout on reflective professional practice.
Objectives - by the end of the day colleagues will:
- Understand the key elements of planning a curriculum in geography which is ambitious, knowledge rich and progressively more challenging in terms of subject outcomes EYFS – Year 6 – ‘intent’.
- Have considered how most effectively to engage and inspire children as young geographers through a pedagogy of enquiry – ‘implementation’.
- Recognise how knowledge and understanding and skills acquisition in geography can be assessed in a manageable way against expected levels of achievement and end points of learning – ‘impact’.
- Having trialled learning enquiries in geography which model and exemplify these key principles.
- Be equipped as subject leaders to improve provision in their schools.
